Default Fishing line Question

What brand fishing line are you using? I went out and bought some 6lb line, every time I make a cast the line in mid air would tangle and turn into a knot, what's a good brand to buy?
Thanks for any help!

Braid? Mono? Floro? Leadcore?

Here is the line I have been using for a couple of years. Very strong and supple. Also very thin. Excellent for ice fishing.

Try soaking the spool in HOT water for about 10 mins.
This will relax the "memory" You created when you spooled it the first time..

Yeah, what he said^^^

There is a right way and wrong way to wind the line off a spool with spinning reels. I just make about 10 reel cranks and let the line fall slack, if it coils up and twists, you gotta flip the spool around. If it just relax's in a pleasant coil, you have it on the correct side.

Trilene XL is all I fish for mono on spinning reels
